On Monday, November 3, 2008 at approximately 2:45PM, a fatal traffic collision occurred in the City of Inglewood on Century Blvd at 5th Ave.
A lone male driver in a Toyota Camry was travelling westbound on Century Blvd at a high rate of speed when he apparently lost control and veered into the eastbound lanes of traffic.
The Toyota collided into an on-coming vehicle, then struck two more vehicles before it came to a rest against the side of the roadway. The injured driver in the Toyota, identified as Leonard Smith, was transported to a local hospital. Smith did not survive and was pronounced deceased by medical staff. He was 57 years of age and a resident of Inglewood.
At the time of the incident, only one person from the other involved vehicles was determined to be injured requiring medical treatment. That person was hospitalized and last reported in stable condition.
